From AIS Bulletin #176, January 1965. Introducing SUNSET BLUES (Bernice Roe) EM 36" (MELODRAMA x WHOLE CLOTH). Striking, and commanding is this Melodrama type flower, which shows much improvement over both parents. Large ruffled standards open pale Wisteria blue, but soon change to white above a pale blue base. The broad ruffled Sea lavender falls measure four inches across. Beard is pale yellow. The strong stalks are beautifully branched, carrying many buds. Numerous judges have stated that SUNSET BLUES is the best flower they have seen from this popular cross. Certificate of Commendation 1962. HC 1963 and again in 1964. $25.00. Roe Nursery.
